day 1772 – six innings

fielded only six innings against wombats before time cap because we struggled to get outs. it was a little windy and fielding more than not didn’t allow me to stay warm and into the game. even at the plate, i didn’t have a good swinging night with two walks and two infield outs. if i recall correctly, wombats are in tier c. we’re still sitting at two wins thus far but we still had fun like we always do. encouraging signs that everyone is still learning and improving as each game goes by

day 1755 – rock of deep cove

speeding through the crowds of quarry rock to finish the entire route in fifty nine minutes. this is by far the fastest timed quarry rock i’ve ever done. it was relatively cool the whole hike up and it wasn’t until we were heading down for lunch when the sun started to peek out. although the original plan was to do st mark’s summit, we noticed the conditions appear unsafe. like most of the people we saw, we turned back and i’m glad we did. it wouldn’t have been wise to hike on ice with regular runners while people with proper hiking boots and poles were turning around

day 1666 Рgreen apple 


setting aside some time to do my run training since the sun run is only two months out. my lungs were clearly not used to all this cardio, i don’t know how people run the marathons or do ironman. though it’s sunny, the subzero temperature and icy ground doesn’t make it sense to be running outside. on my way to the gym i spotted a green apple mercedes on the road

day 939 – sunlight

it’s wonderful to see the blue skies, white clouds and sunshine outside my window. a good stretch of sunny days in vancouver and it’s more than welcome to stay. the warmth under the sun and chill in the shadows means spring is nearing. once again survived the wetness and darkness of vancity winter days but is there one more slope day¬†before the season ends??

day 426 – out and about

i had the desire to walk outside just because it was nice out. it may be sunny but it’s deceivingly chilly and that’s the typical vancouverites have gotten to know so well. i still want to deny that the season has changed, but there’s no denying when i need to pull out my autumn jacket. i cannot believe how fast time is going, it’s the end of another month and soon christmas will be approaching

at confederation park sneaking some water from the kids playground with all the right intentions. here to help complete an als ice bucket challenge for one of my nominees who took the time to actually prepare props and script. too bad it was a not so sunny nor warm day to dunk a bucket of ice and water

day 357 – vancity rain

raining hard on my windshield even the windshield wipers can’t catch up. the weather in past few days hasn’t been good to us as it suddenly got so cold and dark. it’s only been a couple days but i already miss the sunshine and heat. doesn’t feel like summer but good weather should resume before the weekend
